Because I’m a huge data nerd, for your pleasure, my 2014 fitness year in numbers.
I hiked 61 different times totalling 186 miles. The cool stats are all about peakbagging:
2014 was by far my best year ever in the peakbagging category. I had a total of 50 summits that I hiked 112.7 miles to reach gaining 34,856′. (I also attained 11 of those summits by car, Jeep or ATV with 0′ of gain each. Required 3,000′ purist I am not.)
This represented a 49.8% increase in peakbagging mileage, a 51% increase in elevation gained, and a 127% increase in peaks bagged.
I climbed mountains in nine states (Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Utah, and Washington) plus one in Jordan.
Sprocket joined me for 31 of the 50 summits. I only did 12 of the 50 without either Sprocket or human company. I only had human company for 18 of the peaks.
I visited 18 county highpoints spread over five states (Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Oregon and Washington) bringing my lifetime total to 29. I’m hoping to start globbing together more counties in 2015! Two of these county highpoints were also Colorado 14ers: Wilson Peak and Uncompahgre, bringing my 14er total to 5 (plus unranked El Diente).
The last bit of 2014 was pretty dismal as far as working out was concerned and I can feel it. I have big goals for 2015 and I’m already kicking things into gear (I put in 31 miles on foot Christmas week!). I am already so pumped to write the 2015 edition of the report next year!
